  1. Wow! I shall have to use you as a reference! Or, rather, this list. My family thinks that I have, perhaps, gone a bit overboard in my appreciation of all things Pride and Prejudice… I can see I have some catching up to do.

    I wish you all the best and shall have to bookmark this page… Indeed I shall!

    What a fun challenge!

    Here are two more continuations of Pride and Prejudice to add to your list:
    The Darcy’s Give a Ball by Elizabeth Newark
    Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride by Helen Halstead (one of my favorites)

    Another favorite that you have on your list is The Confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Mary Street.

    Good luck and have fun! Who knows I may start a challenge myself!

  3. @ Stephanie: I’m looking forward to it!

    @ Sandi: Thanks. I always feel like I’m adding more rather than reading the ones on my list, and I’m sure there are people out there who have read more than me.

    @ Felicia: Thanks for the additions. I’ve read Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride, but I must have left it off.

    The darcys and the bingleys have a new sequal out, I like it very much. so far, my favorite sequal is the Darcys and the Bingleys. the plot line is good, and it has a happy ending. I cannot stand Linda Berdoll’s adaptions. Too depressing and bad. I need happy endings!
    Another book you missed is by Marsha Altman, I think. I believe it has something to do with vampires

    I just recently finished reading Kathryn Nelson’s Pemberley Manor by Kathryn Nelson and I have to say that it is the best sequel I have come across yet. If you are still working on this challenge I suggest putting that particular sequel at the top of the pile. I’m not joking when I say that I wish she would write another sequel.

    I got the book Loving Mr. Darcy by Sharon Lathan for Christmas. I am almost done and still have no idea what the plot is. It is basically a recounting of all the times they have sex and where they were and how many times they said I love you in one day. It is the most pathetic sequel I have ever read. I never thought I would get bored with something to do with Pride and Prejudice but this was truly boring. I would not waste money on the book if it had not been given to me.

    Love your list! Will have to print it for reference. I’m just finishing the third book in Pamela Aidan’s Darcy trilogy, and I’m loving it! I hope she comes out with another novel continuing where she left off. Looking at your list, I don’t think I saw Colleen McCullough’s book, The Independence of Mary Bennet.

    Another for you list,

    I have just finished reading Mr Darcy Vampyre; by Amanda Grange, which is the story of their wedding tour picking up from where the original book ended.

    Didn’t think the charactors were the same as the first novel through out and obviously the Vampyre bit, a little far fetched – but good read for the train!

    PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES pretends to be ‘the classic you
    actually want to read’ and thinks itself above the whole classic
    literature set. It’s not. It doesn’t even work well as a zombie
    book. It does, however, offer a much better reason for Charlotte’s
    marrying Mr. Collins than Austen ever did….and its dispatching of
    Lady Catherine is quite good.

    Also note: T.H. White wrote DARKNESS AT PEMBERLY — detecive fiction
    set at Pemberly but with a more modern generation of Darcys.

  10. I like the concept of this, although I don’t think I’d be able to keep up with it, since most of the sequels get on my nerves. I always end up picking them up though, it’s hard to resist.

    Are you still reading sequels or have you given up on the list?

    Like

    • Yes, and no. I’ve reached the point now where the sequels are harder and harder to find as I like to swap or mooch the books rather than by them. So, yes, I am still reading them, but it’s also no because I haven’t been able to get my hands on any sequels in a while.
